Physical Book, Digital Book and Audio Books... oh my!

Well, with this long weekend come and gone my original plan was to finish all the books that I had on the go but that didn’t quite work out for me.

I did finish 2 books this week, but I am still reading 2, started a new one and I want to start a fourth one. I am a bit of a mood reader and well I ended up getting a migraine for the second week in a row on Sunday so staring at a screen or a book really wasn’t in the cards for me.

I did read in 3 different formats this weekend which is great and something that I have never really done before, and I am happy that I have done that. I read a physical book, which I finished, I listened to an audio book and finished that book, and I was reading a book digitally, but I couldn’t finish that book, mainly because I couldn’t bare to stare at a screen for a long period of time. The weather may have been a factor here as it went from being hot to hotter and then pouring rain and a huge thunderstorm.

The audio book that I listened to be The Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan which is the 5th book in The Wheel of Time series. I don’t consider these Wheel of Time books to be part of my TBR since I am mainly just listening to them when I get a chance to. I am following along with them in the book, and I am debating in annotating some of it because there are some very funny lines in them as the general roles are reversed and some of the things that are said to deserve a chuckle.

Not Like the Movies by Kerry Winfrey was very cute and somehow ended up like the movies even though its not like the movies!

As of right now I have 3 physical books on the go, 1 digital book and 1 audio book. It really sounds like a lot, which it is but I am not expecting myself to read all of them this week but this month it would be fantastic if I could. For me the point is, I read every single day. It doesn’t matter how much but just if I read.

I guess I should be pushing myself, now that I do have a habit of reading every single day to read 75 pages a day but maybe next week because this week, I am going to be absurdly busy yet again so just the fact that I will read I something that I want to make sure that I am doing. As I am denying the ability to do it I realize that I can better utilize my lunch hour to read, as I can eat and read at the same time versus eating and watching a show on my phone! This is a challenge that I must try and see if I can make it work while at work. Just if I am not taking away from work!
